Resident Evil Village is one of the top games expected this year. Perhaps because of that, it’s the target of an apparent phishing scam.
In an advisory to media outlets, Capcom is warning fans to avoid downloading any files from these emails. We have their full statement below:
We’re sending this message as we’ve been made aware that there are currently emails circulating that pretend to contain “Early Access invitations” to Resident Evil Village. The sender address is being displayed as “no-reply(at)capcom(dot)com”.
We want to inform you that these messages are NOT from Capcom and appear to be phishing attempts by an unauthorized third party. If you have received such a message, please DO NOT download any files or reply, and delete the message immediately.
If you are unsure of the authenticity of correspondence from Capcom, please contact us directly to verify.
Resident Evil Village is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on May 7, 2021. Pre-orders for the game are open now. We’ll have more information on the game as we get closer to launch in a couple of months.
